Style File 11.09.11 | A lunch date


Since we had both sets of Grandparents around last weekend, Kev and I decided to sneak out on a little lunch date when Rowan was taking her nap. We couldn’t even remember the last time we went out together on a date. Needless to say it was much needed. Kev got the meat loaf and I got Sweet potato Cannelloni’s and we just enjoyed each others company for a short but sweet little afternoon.

I haven’t worn this dress since the summer and I have been looking forward to re-wearing it for the fall. I decided to wear a blouse underneath and add some caramel colored tights. These wedges are I think, the easiest heel I have to walk in. I am pretty sure I could wear them for a week straight and not have sore feet.


Outfit Details:
Blouse: Vintage
Dress: c/o ModCloth
Belt: Thrifted
Tights: Target
Wedges: c/o Lulu’s
